    The signature of SetPropertyToDataTable tells us that the type of dataList is T.

    The 'as' operator says "if dataList is of type T[] then return a value whose type is T[], otherwise return null".

    datalist is not if type T[] so the 'as' operator returns null.  It is impossible for something to be of a certain type and also be an array of that same type at the same time.
